Earlier this year, we reported that Jocelyn Bulow was moving the Potrero Hill location of Chez Maman into the former home of Chez Papa, also on Potrero Hill. Now we’ve got details on what is moving into the cozy Chez Maman location: Bulow’s latest project, DAT SPOT. He’s brought on chef Brandon Peacock (Lungomare, Venticello) to run the kitchen, which is serving American comfort food. Think appetizers like fondue and baby back ribs, along with main dishes such as a pork chop, fish and chips, and rotisserie chicken. The new concept will open Monday September 21st. Update: we just heard from the team that, due to issues with city inspections, the opening date has been pushed back to Monday September 28th. Hours are 11:30am-10pm, with weekend brunch Sat-Sun 11:30am-3pm. 1453 18th St. at Connecticut, 415-872-6670.
Try out a taste of New England at LOBSTER ME, UPDATE: NOW OPENING SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 26TH in the Westfield San Francisco Centre. This is the small chain’s first California restaurant, joining two locations in Las Vegas and another in Maryland. The lobster rolls are all made with sustainably harvested lobster and include choices like the Original Maine Style, with a touch of mayonnaise and chives, or the Connecticut, with warm butter in a brioche bun. As a nod to San Francisco, they’ve also added the Golden Gate roll to the lineup, with miso mayonnaise, scallion, sesame seeds, and shredded nori. Other menu items include lobster mac and cheese and the lobster grilled cheese sandwich.
To celebrate their opening, Lobster ME will be giving out free Golden Gate lobster rolls September 26th through the 28th to the first 100 customers at the shop. Hours are Mon-Sat 10am-8:30pm and Sun 11am-7pm. 865 Market St. at 5th St.
